Top Ten Reasons to Hate Serena from Pokemon


The Contenders: Page 2

21 She looks more stupid when she blushes

I want to slap her when she does this. - eventer51314

My rage level went up over 9000 when I first saw those two images of Serena blushing! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

For an anime fan like me, I actually find it cute when an anime girl blushes. Like when Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online does it. However, if we're talking about Serena here, then BLEH! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I would pay 100 dollars to be sucked into the T.V. show and slap serena across the face RIGHT WHERE SHE BLUSHED MAKING HER FACE EVEN REDDER then I would tell her that Ash was ot interested and that she needed to just stop her stupid fantasy life where ash loves her and everything revolves around her and that she just needs to go back to hell and BURN because Ash is as dense as a block of led and you need to stop throwing a pity party every time something does not go your wway and that I wished that when she cut her hair that the knife slipped and cut her neck open

22 Her new haircut sucks

I hate how her new haircut is not only stupid, but it also makes Serena look like Patty Thompson from Soul Eater! How could such a good character like Patty be disgraced by having a blonde idiot like Serena have a haircut similar to her own?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Shame the knife didn't slip through her head - TwilightKitsune

It doesn't make any sense at all! And I agree, it does make her look even stupider. - eventer51314

I hate her stupid haircut and for once l agree with bonnie,it looked prettier before. - 766925

23 She's dumb

Ash was ignorant. He wasn't dumb. Serena however is stupid as she isn't smart enough to gain her own courage for herself & always has to remember what ash-sama said.

How can people say Molly and Serena are the same person or related?! Molly is kind, compassinite, and young. Serena's mean, rude, and stupid. Both meet ash and friends, not to mention ITS IMPOSSIBLE! People might say they look alike but that's because Serena copies EVERYTHING from Molly to Ash to Aria.

Dumb blondes! Because Pokemon just had to go all-out Disney and start stereotyping blonde people! What has the Pokemon anime come to?! At least Korrina isn't dumb! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

...and annoying - Neonco31

24 She's only there as fan service and ship bait

I think that she was created just so there wouldn't be fights for who ash loves that's why she has no development shes just there so majority of other ships would grow smaller and smaller so there would only be one ship left and no more fights but it causes more fights then fixes - heyyou

This is so true I mean seriously she sucks

This I will admit is definitely the truth. And the fact that I am saying this to all of you should prove to all of you once and for all that I am not just some obssesive fanboy like some of Serena's other fans in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

25 She completely ignores Clemont and Bonnie

Clemont cooked a really nice dinner to celebrate her final princess key, and she didn't even say thank you! Spoiled brat! I DESPISE how she ignores Clemont! He's such a great friend to her. And what does she do? She overlooks him because she is so infatuated with Ash. Clemont is invested in her dream, and he's attentive and shows concern for her feelings. Unlike Ash, who is as dense as a block of lead, and isn't really that interested in her stupid Tripokalons. Amourshipping sucks. Serena sucks. She does NOT deserve Clemont's friendship!

True. And Serena doesn't even deserve any friends! She is so annoying and I want to put her in an incinerator full of Barbie dolls, because that's what she is! She is a Barbie doll, that's all she is! At least Lucy Heartfilia from Fairy Tail cares for her friends, and I don't even like her! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This leans more toward Clemont. The anime focuses on Serena and ash's love but I'd rather let Serena take some time to be with Clemont every once in a while. Serena should give Clemont a chance because Serena needs someone who won't break her heart. What makes Clemont unloveable? What gives? The geek can't have anyone? Heck I picture clemont inventing things for serena! Granted they explode after the first try...laughter is the best medicine for feeling blue and his inventions exploding make me offense clemont! You are awesome in your own geeky way! There are the geeks no one wants to be around and there are the creative ones like inventors who never give up no matter how many times inventions don't work out.

I think this is the thing that irritates me most about her. She's only with the group because of Ash. She doesn't give a hoot about Clemont and Bonnie. I bet if she had met them elsewhere, she wouldn't have given them a second thought. Selfish brat! - eventer51314

I kind of disagree with her dissing Bonnie, she seems to care even a little. Clemont (god praise this lemon child for being so patient) even entrusts Bonnie to Serena sometimes.

But her dissing Clemont? I can agree with that. She...flat out ignores him when it's not concerning Ash. I don't support the idea of Clemont having a thing for Serena (I don't even think he does, I see no confirmation, no special hints beyond platonic feelings and thank god GeekChic is highly improbable...Serena ships are rants for another day...) but he clearly wants to be her friend. And what does she do? Ignore him and pushes all her attention to Ash! She seems fine with him during the beginnig but as the series grew...ugh how I wanted to hate her if it wasn't for her character development. The generous cinnamon roll doesn't deserve the bitch's friendship.

26 She copies Ash's attitude

She tried to anyway! All she ever thinks about is "this is what ash says, & so I must go with it instead of mustering courage & confidence for myself, I have to think of what ash says all the time to help me though everything! "

Yeah! You never see her motivate herself. You never see her coming to any conclusion on her own, without thinking about what Ash has told her. She's so pathetically dependent on him! It makes me sick! - eventer51314

Like seriously Ash's attitude doesn't even suit her goal. she's so dumb

Exactly! She just sees someone she likes and thinks, 'I must act like that! ' She did the same with Aria. Shauna, Nini, Miette, and Jessie all have their own style when performing, and still 'showcase' their own personality in their performances. Serena, though? She is unbelievably bland and unoriginal. Like an 'Aria 2.0', or something. (That's what she wants. Heck! Palermo only even likes Serena because she's a clone of Aria! ) This is why I was so annoyed that Serena made it to the finals and not one of the other, unique girls. Everything about her goal is such a bad message to girls!
Think for yourself, Serena! Like, who are you really? You're SO fake! - eventer51314

Yup. Shauna's special trait is optimism and smiling all the time, Miette's is attitude and teasing, Nini is... well... Nini, Jessie is boastful, but Serena? Really? She just copies aria. I mean, I get she motivated her and gave her a bit of character development and even encouraged her eevee to evolve but her performances are a little too close to Aria's for my liking - gamerkitty6274

27 She's shallow

Oh I lost a battle. I need to cut my hair because I need to. ASH LOST A LOT AND HE didn't DO ANYTHING STUPID INSTEAD HE KEPT TRYING HE DID CRY SOMETIMES BUT HE NEVER QUIT! Serena is this dumb blonde who thinks she has a chance with Ash oh please Ash was better off with Misty I hope Misty comes back and Serena kills herself cause Ash and Misty get together

I mean, she thinks cutting her hair and changing her outward appearance is gonna help her? - eventer51314

Yeah, and have you seen the movie Joy, with Jennifer Lawrence? Her character cuts her hair to symbolize a fresh start, but only after she had gone through great hardship! Serena though? She cuts her hair after ONE loss, in her very first performance. SO dumb & pathetic. - eventer51314

Serena is the most shallow person I HEARD OF EVER! Not only she's a devil and a jerk to girls and obsessed with being clean and looks she's ignorant. Clemont, Tierno, and Jimmy are all SUPER nice to her and helpful and what do they get in return? NOTHING! She just makes fun of them and ignores them!

The reason I cut my hair was to make it easier to take care of and it was in bad shape. serena had no particular reason to cut her hair.

28 She's irrelevant to the story, plot, and the group

Serena was just a part of this to introduce Pokémon Preforming and she had no other purpose

29 Most of what she does is to impress Ash

The only reason she does anything is to impress Ash... Baking? Check. Performing? Check Check. Battling? CHECK CHECK CHECK. When will Serena learn that keys, foods, and moves will NOT get the guy. He needs a dorky, silly, smart, sassy girl... like ME!


30 She's not even good at showcases

I hate showcases in general to be honest. You may as well call them 'Contests, minus the battling', because that's what they basically are.

Showcases are somewhat different from contests because the trainer gets involved too in my opinion.

And if she's not good at them at all then how the hell did she reach the very finals?! Biased reasoning as always in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

31 There is nothing special about her

Misty- she had a dark past but she still managed to get out of it and show her sisters that she's not a ru nt. v ery admirab le. a nd despite quarrelling with each others, they love each oth er. h ints had been sho wn. a sh got jealous of another guy and stared at her for she looked beautif ul. b ut ash didn't to it with other femal es. t here are PLENTY of other hints, on both sides.
m ay- very good character development.
d awn- girly but still very cute and cheerful
s erena - bratty meanie, and rest ya know.
i wasn't able to control myself after seeing ash. I'm not saying he's mine but still he's so handsome and good. I'm not gay I'm a girl of 13. I wish misty
c ame in kalos and kicked serena's ass
a nd ash and misty kissed in front of h er. i t would be a good lesson for her.
a sh was the cutest in kanto to joh to. h oenn to unova was okay but don't you think that kalos is ...more

32 Her goal has nothing to do with Pokemon

I like performing except that you have to wear cute dresses. But what I really hate is that Serena doesn't get in " touch " with her Pokemon. She bosses them around. Even worse is she rarely battles and only when she does it is to impress Ash. People say she's bad " only because she has 3 Pokemon". Don't blame the Pokemon. I hope she gets five Pokemon and STILL LOSES. But she doesn't need Pokemon to lose all she needs isherself

Showcases are like idol anime. So much focus is on the 'trainers' (if you could even call them that), might as well replace the Pokemon with smoke machines and laser lights. - eventer51314

Should've stuck to Rhyhorn racing instead of Pokemon Showcases, Serena. What a bitch. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

33 Her main quality by fans is "being the prettiest female companion" when she isn't

EXCUSE ME? NO SHE isn't! She's just s pretty as Dawn! Serena may be outer pretty but she ain't inner pretty. And people shouldn't judge people by looks!

Serena is extremely ugly, if you cut her hair shorter she would look like a gay boy, plus her fashion choices are horrible they are sexual and hideous, I just want to jump into the anime rip off all her clothes burn them then get a bucket of Barbie dolls and dump it on her head.

And if we take her redesign in account, I'd vote she b the UGLYIST female companion. Yep even behind Iris.

"Yep even behind Iris"

I hope Iris isn't considered the ugliest companion because she's black. Iris also has the most unique design out of the female leads we had. - Rue

34 She's useless

Sawyer got 8 gym badges before Ash did. I blame Serena. She made the group take detours for her dumb showcases. She's always holding the them up for stupid, pointless things like shopping, making sure she doesn't get dirt on herself, baking Pokepuffs, the list goes on! - eventer51314

Jessie is far mor competent & smarter, and prettier than Serena can ever dream of.

She is SO worthless that I wouldn't toss her into the grarbage because I'll feel SORRY for it. All she does is complain, whine, bully, and blush. She sucks at everything. Her motto :" Ash must be mine and nothing else matters! "

Alright, I kinda agree with most of it, but I would stop my journey for a Pokèpuff! (Stomach growls)

35 She thinks Ash likes her

That isn't true! 1 ash usually ignores or yells at her 2 they are total opposites 3 SHES EVIL WHILE HIS NAME ACTUALLY MEANS BIG HERO

She does seem completely delusional at times. Like when she goes & tries to hold ash's hand, scoot closer during the picture, and acting like she knows ash real well (LOL THAT BACKFIRED SO BAD), when she was suppost to warn him about a snowstorm.

I don't think Ash's eyes sparkling after Serena kisses him count. That could be just out of surprise. - yungstirjoey666

Even the Amourshippers think about it, according to an Amourshipper on Instagram, after the "kiss" that Serena made, that stupid Amourshipper said, "Oh come on, Ash. You know you like her", I was like "! NO... HE... DOESN'T! " She thinks that "Okay, Ash will have to 'notice' me some time. I know that Ash 'likes' me, so I'll do my 'best' to have him 'notice' me! " Augh! No! - ClassicGaminer

36 She doesn't care about Pokemon
37 Serena is solely there for ship baiting and fan service

I hate that the only reason she was there was for shipping and fan service.They wanted some drama... NOW XYZ is DESTROYED! She is mean, dumb, and useless. No wonder Unava was the best. Lots of great music, effects, characters, and the RIGHT amount a drama. NO SERENA! WHOS WITH ME

That is so true. And I'm glad to see another person who knows that Best Wishes had good points too. - FrozenHatingPokefan

She is not going to Ahola. And if she does, why does it even matter? Misty went to Kanto, Johto, Orange Islands, and even returned in Hoen. No one has been in there that long ( excepts Brock ). Not even the fan may. Its not like there married! YEESH! Big deal if she keeps stalking Ash or Not. If there is another bad character ( I'm asking the producers to put me in it, like loads of fans ) I am gonna GO INSANE. But then again there can't be anyone worst than Serena...

38 Barbie is jealous of her

Lol Barbie shouldn't be. She gots her man, can do more than Serena can ever dream, isn't as stupid as her to cut her hair thinking that'll change her, & is a much better role model for kids as (as far as I know) isn't dependent on a guy, is able to do more than be pretty, is very successful in her life, & is capable to do more than Serena can ever dream.

Who ever said this is totally wrong Serena should be jealous of Barbie. She's a stupid blond who is obsessed with Ash

Ha! Please. Serena is a Barbie rip off. - eventer51314

Barbie wouldn't be jealous of Serena.

Barbie has everything. She's rich, she has many careers that she's successful in, she has her man, she's independent, she is somewhat of a role model... Not the perfect role model mind you but she's more of a role model than Serena and Barbie has more to her than Serena does.

So yeah, Barbie wouldn't be jealous. - Rue

39 She and Molly aren't related

People are saying Molly and Serena are related or worse, THE SAME PERSON! This can't be true :... 1. They both know ash and his friends. 2. Serena is evil and mean while Molly is kind. 3. ITS impossible. Everybody likes Molly and Nobody likes Serena. It doesn't make sense.( Like Amourshipping and why Serena's in the anime.

Molly: A young child who, after losing her father, befriends the entei he told her about in legends and tries the best she can to have her family complete again. I mean, she did kidnap ash's mum, but that was only because she had lived most of her life without a mother of her own and just wanted a happy family for her and her Pokemon.
Serena: Ash found her injured in the woods one day. And like any reasonable person would, he bandaged her up. Serena then develops a crush on Ash for no particular reason (like seriously! That's like me falling in love with my doctor! ) 7 or so years later, Serena sees her childhood crush again, acts like a girly Mary Sue crybaby, and honestly, I think Ash would sooner kiss Clemont than Serena.

Who's Molly again? - yungstirjoey666

How is Serena evil and mean? Please give me one good reason! - HeavyDonkeyKong

40 She is the least favorite traveling companion.

Everybody has a fave old traveling companion. Since I'm a nerd like Clemont ( but ash is my fave ;) ) I study the results. They are... 5. Brock 4. Cilan. 3. Misty 2. May 1. Clemont. Notice Serena isn't THERE. Not even close. Why are these people in? Brock. While annoying he was a fave of many and brought lots of humor AND ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTED TO THE PLOT. Cilan, like Brock was another hilarious and kind fave. Misty while annoying and brattish did bring lots of happiness ( and laughs ) in the series. May, being kind, brave, and adventurous has gotten herself in lots of people's hearts. And why is Clemont number one? Because all out of all the companions he is the most unique. No other protagonist has loved science as much as he does. He's very creative and smart. While he has lots of self doubt ( which we can all relate to) he is the kindest out of all of them. And why Serena isn't? Well, its because SHE SUCKS. She's mean, evil, nasty, stupid and just plain rude! She's mean to ...more

Stop your complants

I believe it! But the Pokèpuffs and macaroons tell me not to believe it... She is a good cook!
